While brioche is best known for its cushy textural rib pattern, there are endless variations to explore. In this class, you'll get to know my two favorite textural brioche stitches: honeycomb brioche & pearl brioche, in both one- and two-colors. Students should already be comfortable with brioche knit and purl stitches. Please take an introductory brioche classes before taking this one!
Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, basic brioche comfort
Cast on 17 sts with Color A (lighter color) and long-tail cast-on and work in two-color brioche as follows. The first and last stitch are selvedge stitches.
Set-up (WS): (k1, sl1yo) to last st, sl1 wyif
R1 (RS-A): k1, brk1, (sl1yo, brk1) to last st, sl1 wyif; slide
R1 (RS-B): k1, sl1yo, (brp1, sl1yo) to last st, sl1 wyif; turn
R2 (WS-A): k1, brp1, (sl1yo, brp1) to last st, sl1 wyif; slide
R2 (WS-B): k1, sl1yo, (brk1, sl1yo) to last st, sl1 wyif; turn
brk = brioche knit; brp = brioche purl; k = knit; RS = right side; sl = slip stitch (purl-wise); sl1yo = slip stitch and yarn-over at the same time; slide = slide all stitches to the other end of the needle; sts = stitches; turn = turn work; WS = wrong side; wyif = with yarn in front;
At least 2 colors of yarn (solid, high contrast colors) and 2 DPNs / 1 set of circular needles in matching size, eg. fingering weight and US 4/3.5 mm, DK weight and US 6/4.0 mm, or worsted weight and US 7/4.5 mm.
